The “Question of the Day” was Name your favorite experience from QuiltCon or PVQA quilt shows.  The general theme from all of the answers is that quilt shows let us know what  a great community we are involved in, and they are incredibly inspirational.  

  • Renee and Laura received ribbons in the PVQA show this year.
  • Mickey has two quilts being shown in International Quilt Fest in Chicago, and then on to Houston
  • Karen’s Bee Social group placed first in their group at QuiltCon in Savannah.  The QDAD group received lots of attention.  Not to mention that three of her own quilts were in the show.
